LDAP in NOVA

sonali-NSC
Hi there..!!

I am new in openstack. We are planning to implement Openstack Nova and
Swift too.  So we are in designing and planning stage. So i am in need
of help for Ldap issue.
As i understand LDAP is required for Openstack compute. So i want to
know, is LDAP inbuilt/integrated with Compute package..?
If not then what is recommended LDAP to be used for openstack
compute...like OpenLDAP, OpenDS, Apache Directory etc.....?

Thanks,
Sonali Jadhav

Hi Sonali -

Welcome to OpenStack land! Generally authorization can be handled either
with the database or LDAP. In Nova, authorization is used for users,
projects, and roles. You can configure OpenLDAP (or LDAP) by specifying
nova.auth.ldapdriver.LdapDriver. If you install with the developer-oriented
script, contrib/nova.sh, refer to
http://nova.openstack.org/quickstart.htmlfor an env var to set which
LDAP driver is used. I believe the Sun
(opends/opendj/sun directory server/fedora ds) schemas are available in
addition to LDAP.

I don't have recommendations or preferences to offer, but someone else may
want to chime in. You can also hop over to the #openstack IRC channel on
freenode and ask for opinions there, I'm sure there are some. :)
